The commissioner and the deputy mayor were greeted by Borough Market chairman Donald Hyslop and managing director Darren Henaghan.

They also met representatives of local business improvement districts Better Bankside and Team London Bridge who work closely with the Met on crime prevention initiatives.

Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said: "At Christmas, officers continue to work around the clock and protect London whilst people are enjoying their festivities, so we hope this helps highlight the challenges our officers face and their year-round dedication."

The #WalktheMet initiative saw councillors, MPs and London Assembly members across the capital go on patrol with their local police to learn about the issues facing front-line officers.
